Bamboo is becoming more and more popular. Because it grows so quickly, bamboo is an easily renewable resource. It requires 1/3 the amount of water to grow that cotton uses and has no natural pests. This means that bamboo can be grown with little to no use of pesticides or herbicides whereas cotton often requires a large amount of pesticides to maintain growth. Bamboo plantations can quite easily be kept organic and replanted every year.
Bamboo fabric is very soft, it feels like cashmere. This is because the bamboo fiber itself is naturally round and smooth without any chemical treatment, there are no sharp spurs to irritate the skin. This means that bamboo can be used on or directly next to skin, even with many people who are allergic to other natural fibers such as hemp or wool. Bamboo fibers are also quite long so there is less piling of the fabric.
The softness and quality of the Muslin fabric stands up to multiple washings, with the fabric getting even softer with each wash. Another unique quality with bamboo fiber is it is reported to have antibacterial qualities. Reports suggest that due to an antimicrobial bio-agent called “bamboo kun” which is found naturally in the fiber. This kun makes bamboo a naturally antibacterial, antifungal and odor resistant fiber, through multiple washings. Cotton has nothing like this. Bamboo kun reportedly helps to reduce bacteria that thrive on clothing and human skin.
